Tech 4 Teens workshops are for girls (Aged 11-17) interested in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. All of the sessions will be really interactive, creative and fun! Throughout 2017 we will meet up once a month to get inspired and meet like minded girls. We will be learning new things and learning from each other!
This month is all about Wearables : Making a light up bracelet
We will use a Gemma board which is a sewable mini computer (like an Arduino) and LED’s to make a light up bracelet. To make the circuit soft and wearable we will use conductive thread to stitch the circuit instead of using wires. We will stitch on Neopixels, programmable LEDs, they can be programmed change colour, flash and fade. Once you’ve built your circuit and have it working you will be able to try out programming the colours of the lights. If you have time you can add in a light sensor so the bracelet changes colour depending if it is light or dark.
The sessions are FREE to attend thanks to the support of the Big Lottery fund but you do need to register so that we know how many girls will attend.
Please note. This month is only open to 20 students due to costs of equipment. If you book a ticket please make sure you can attend.
**Venue and activities are subject to changes - details will be sent out by email before each session to those who have registered**
